|Me At A Little Free Library in Hayward, California|
We also visited the Hayward Japanese Garden for the first time ever, which was our main purpose in visiting Hayward. OMG, what an amazing garden to visit. The Hayward Japanese Garden is an oasis in the middle of the city! It's located on roughly 3 acres of land between two creeks on relatively flat terrain. There's a koi pond and several benches and covered areas to sit and commune with nature. A perfect place to meditate or read a book on beautiful days like today as we had temperatures in the mid-70s during the time we visited.
The Hayward Japanese Garden is open daily from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Not sure if it is closed for holidays though. Admission and parking for the Hayward Japanese Garden are free.

What a great way to start the second half of 2018!
